Kodaline Release New Album, ‘Our Roots Run Deep’

International chart-topping hitmakers Kodaline have released their stunning new stripped-back live album Our Roots Run Deep via Fantasy Records/Concord. Marking the release, they have revealed a touching live video for their platinum-selling single ‘All I Want which closes the album.

‘All I Want’ encapsulates Our Roots Run Deep perfectly, a deeply intimate moment from Kodaline’s Olympia Theatre show in Dublin where the album was recorded in March this year. Alongside cellist David Doyle, with addition keys and vocals from David Prendergast, the heartfelt ballad was transformed in ways never heard by fans before. A warm and intimate spectacle was created which found Kodaline and their fans filling the theatre with full sincere voice for the beautiful finale.
Regarding the song frontman Steve Garrigan says,

“I think for most people who have heard of us, this is the song that they would know or would possibly be waiting for if they happened to go along to a Kodaline show. Playing this song never gets old for us and it still means a lot to me. I hope the atmosphere and energy of the show comes across in this recording because for us it was something special. Hope you guys enjoy the show.”

When Kodaline stepped onstage at the Olympia Theatre, bassist/vocalist Jason Boland, guitarist/vocalist Mark Prendergast, and drummer/vocalist Vinny May and Steve Garrigan felt a deep sense of renewal, of their friendship, their brotherhood, and their musical community.
The beloved Irish quartet also felt a sense of release. Two years of pandemic-related separation, from each other, and the audience they had meticulously built since 2011, had underscored how essential that symbiotic relationship really is.
Our Roots Run Deep is a spectacular showcase for the purity of the band’s artistry and the profound musical impact they’ve had on a generation.
The quieter musical beds pushed the band’s emotionally driven lyrics and intricately woven harmonies to the forefront, deepening their poignant resonance even further. It also left room for the voices of their ecstatic fans, who filled the open spaces every chance they could!
Our Roots Run Deep is produced with pristine clarity by fellow Irish cohort, Phillip Magee and features a cross-section of the group’s most treasured tunes and three illuminating covers in over 80-minutes of music with 17 tracks.
The album is out now digitally and in an array of physical formats including CD / Standard Cream LP / Limited Indie & HMV Maroon LP / Irish Exclusive Green LP as well as special fan bundles available at kodaline.com including limited signed prints & exclusive double cassette.
Kodaline have been touring in the same set up as heard on Our Roots Run Deep and as seen in the videos for singles ‘High Hopes’, ‘Wherever You Are’, ‘Brother’ and ‘All I Want. Currently on an extensive European tour throughout October and November, they will return to the UK in December for three rescheduled intimate headline shows.
A huge live draw across the world, the band have also recently been announced to headline Loudlive Festival in Indonesia on December 3rd and Authentica Festival in Portugal on December 9th. Having launched Our Roots Run Deep with a massive 25,000 capacity show at Dublin’s Malahide Castle this summer, the band have announced another huge outdoor show for their homeland in 2023 and will headline Musgrave Park in Cork on June 23rd.
